Posted at 8:11 AM, Feb 08, 2021

In an interview before the Super Bowl, President Joe Biden supported the reopening of schools across America.

The president also provided an overview of his administration's vaccine strategy.

"So that's why we've ramped up every way we can. I got a call through Commissioner Goodell saying we could have all 32 NFL stadiums available for mass vaccinations. And we are," said President Biden. "Absolutely we will [use them]. And, I mean, let me put it this way. I'm gonna tell my team they're available and I believe we'll use them. Look, it was one thing if we had enough vaccine, which we didn't. So we're pushing as hard as we can to get more vaccine manufactured."

The president and the first lady Jill Biden also thanked frontline workers and urged mask-wearing.
